Upcoming Book on the Mafia in Cuba


Recommended Posts

Author TJ English, who wrote The Westies (not only my favorite mob book, but one of my favorite non fiction books in general) is releasing Havana Nocturne this summer.

I'm reading through the proof now- an excellent examination of the mob's role in politics, drug trafficking, and debauchery during the pre-Castro era. English interviewed a number of great sources. I put him in contact with some Tampa subjects that were helpful in relating the Tampa-Cuba connection. I think this will be the pre-eminent work on the subject.

Scott,

Have you read David Kaiser's The Road To Dallas yet?

I'd like your opinion on it.

And thanks for the heads up on the Havana Nocture.

I have just ordered Havana Nocturne and am looking forward to reading it.

As a Hemingway afficionado, I am anxious to learn about whether (or the extent to which) he, the Mob and the Mob's emissaries in Cuba interracted during the 1940s and 1950s when he lived in Cuba.

I think that he throw most of his prodigious drinking business to the Floridita, which I believe was a popular bar for American tourists and ex-pats.
